Aegidienberger

The Aegidienberger is a small gaited riding horse from Germany. Like the Icelandic horse, it can naturally perform a gait known as the tölt. They were first recognized as a breed at the end of the 20th century.

There have never been more than 100 members of this breed at any one time, and the breed numbers have been in decline since the inception of the stud book.

Characteristics:

The Aegidienberger is a cross between the Peruvian Paso and the Icelandic horse, created to produce a horse that was larger than the Icelandic, but still small and hardy enough to navigate difficult terrain. They generally stand between 13 and 15 hands high. This breed comes in every colour.
